FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS — Police are trying to find a suspect in the armed robbery of a Sally Beauty Supply store.
Lt. Steve Evans said the store at 10850 Lincoln Trail was robbed by an armed man at 5:50 p.m. Tuesday.
A store employee reported the suspect entered the business through the front door while no customers were present. He came to the counter, displayed a handgun and demanded money, Evans said.
